This too shall pass

For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.

2 Corinthians 4:17–18

I want to eat a meal without holding a baby. I want to go to the bathroom without someone hunting me down for something. I want to shower more than twice a week, I want to not be needed or not have any obligations to anyone other than myself for even ten minutes.
I want to stop feeling so broken and tired and just done.

I have felt all these feelings before, they are no stranger to me. Just as I have survived them before, I will survive them again. I just want other moms to know that this is temporary. These feelings are normal. It does not make you a bad mom to feel these things.

I know this will pass. This feeling of helplessness. This feeling of exhaustion. This feeling of fear and of pain. I know it will pass, but sometimes when you’re in the thick of it, it’s hard to feel that way.
